Posted on 04/24/2012 12:11:07 AM PDT by Lazlo in PA
Today, the National Journal reported that a senior State Department official has announced, The war on terror is over.
Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, the source said, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.
The article itself describes the Obama administrations new vision of foreign policy, which admits no enemies. Everyone, in this view, is a friend. Islamism, says the Obama administration, is just fine, so long as it does not openly support terrorism.
This, of course, is utter foolishness. Islamism is a religious ideological movement that brooks no real alternatives so while the State Department proclaims a legitimate Islamism, it fails to acknowledge that Islamism, legitimate or not, is deeply intolerant of any other modes of expression. Not only that, but Islamism works hand-in-glove with terror groups around the world. Simply because a regime does not openly house al Qaida does not mean that the regime doesnt support al Qaida; just because a regime pretends at democracy doesnt mean that it has real democratic values.
Obama has created the brave new Middle East a Middle East that assumes that every human heart has the desire to vote, but not to be truly free; a Middle East that oppresses women and gays and minorities, but pretends at liberalism; a Middle East that despises America but hides that hate behind a façade of multiculturalism, even as it disposes of its internal dissenters.

That misinformation is terrifying in itself.
Wonder where all those unemployed TSA agents will find work?
Department of Homeland Security is closing when?
Troops coming home today from Afghan/Iraq?
We be saving heap big monies!
Will there be a picture of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square on the evening news tonight?
April 24 to be memorialized as VT Day?
“I will believe it when
1) The TSA goes home
2) The barriers are removed from the roadways in front of the whitehouse
3) things stop going boom all over the world”
I think in their minds the war on terror ended when they just pasted their new legislation curtailing our right to protest near the Secret Service.
Now I guess we have about the same protection for political speech as the people in China.
It is amazing how the progressive filth (both parties) in this country has been able to erode even the first amendment which was MAINLY in place to protect political speech. No longer, yet we remain silent.
I also see Pelosi had no compunction telling us the administration will just ignore the USSC should they rule against our Kenyan led administration on the Arizona immigration issue.
OK, limit political free speech, ignore the USSC, use executive orders to bypass congress, can anyone tell us we are not living in a dictatorship?
IMO, the Treasury department, via the SS, is committing treason by protecting this administration.
Under the current rules, just who can possibly reign in this administration? Given they don’t even want to allow the states to required a valid ID to vote, I for one have ZERO faith in the ballot box.
This country is toast with very few willing to follow the brilliance of the Founders.
The article misses the point.
What Obama et al say or do is irrelevant to the average Islamic family. He has no influence that is meaningful. They are being swept up in a tide of unprecedented growth and relative prosperity and change.
The historical process of sorting through the change is well underway and the old order is losing control. The new order is not yet defined and certainly not in place.
To this historical process, America is of little import and The Messiah is totally irelevant
obama has accomplished two major goals: One, he’s bought the muslim vote and two, he has just freed up the the Dept. of Homeland Security to go after Tea Partiers and conservatives. In other words, us here at FR.
Actually it is quite the clever lie. You see, most Americans are not like FReepers or other informed individuals. They believe things like this that the government says. So, when the bombs or bomb-threats etc. start happening in earnest here...why it won't be that pesky al-queda doing these things. It will be that newly defined domestic terrorist to blame.
They are setting in motion their propaganda hand for the summer. The message here is al-queda is not our biggest threat/fear...that my FRiend is going to be whoever they define as the 'domestic terrorist.' And that won't be any of the groups WE would think...it will be those who will be Constitutional Patriots.
Uh...why yes I believe they have gotten the memo...
Actually, Obama is correct — from his standpoint. He’s a Muslim. The Muslims are winning. For Muslims, the war is over, or is almost over.
>> Obama is FINISHED <<
I wouldn’t bet the farm on that. Between massive voter fraud and useful idiots, he may just get his 2nd term. I saw a Obama 2012 bumber sticker this morning.
The war on terror is over.
No it’s not. The neo-Nazis and racists in the rat party will create a new terrorist group to fight - working honkies and white latinos who look like Zimmerman.
I’m encouraged, though, by the fact that Buckwheat’s average soldier in his “army” now tips the scales at 357 lbs. and rising. Adjust the length and steel content in your harpoons accordingly, men. Half suffer from diabetes, heart disease and emphysema. The other half can’t run 30 yards without collapsing.
For over 1400 years, the goal of this 7th century creation has been the total domination of the entire planet and they have not stopped their barbaric murder of all infidels and defamation of all women since then.
There will never be peace with islam and sadly the only cure is eradication of every believer on the planet.
The myth of a moderate mooselimb, is just that.
They either believe or not and if they believe, then all non-believers are their mortal enemy.
You might want peace, but if your enemy believes that you and he are at war, then regardless of your participation in the fighting, you will participate in the dying.
Worst part is, so many soft targets. They don't have to hit Washington, although it'd be a prize for them. All they have to do is irradiate an obscure corner and it's martial law and dictatorial powers for dear leader.
So...I guess...for them it sounds like a plan.
Al Queda is not our worst enemy. The AP is a far more destructive force than AQ.
The people in the White House are far worse and more destructive than any outside enemy.
If reelected there will be blood in the streets as riots in the cities result from being starved by closed interstate hiways
If someone is at war with you, a state of war exists, whether or not you're stupid enough to pretend that it doesn't.
And so, since we know for a fact that Islam is still at war with us, this "announcement," amounts in fact to surrender, by definition.
Well this is great news! So now the feds can begin dismantling that fascist monstrosity aka the ‘Department of Homeland Security’ and their little jackboot sockpuppets the ‘TSA’, because if the War on Terror is “over”,
Gotta read between the lines. He only said the war against muslim terrorism is over, not the war against Americans.
I think its all about the campaign and people will see though it.
We’re talking about Americans. At least half the population is too stupid to see through it. Just wait till butt kisser Biden opens his yap about obama single handedly defeating al-Qaeda.
So...the US got Al Qaeda to sign an unconditional surrender???
If not, he’s an idiot.
In conclusion: He’s an idiot! If your enemy’s still out there, still trying to kill you, and still even a fraction capable, then the war’s not over.
9/11 happened because we ignored the enemy’s declaration of war against us: WTC1, Khobar Towers, Kenya/Tanzania embassies, the USS Cole....
Obama is FINISHED, it is the economy stupid that will do him in.
Not anymore. Half the population thinks we’re in an economic boom greater than the Roaring 20’s.
Read those words carefully.
He’s admitting they’ve won.
So, when will the war on airlines and their passengers be over?
Let’s see if THEIR rhetoric and violence abates .
He is not admitting that “they” won.
He is crowing that “we” because he is part and parcel of the muslims won.
Do not fool yourself, the only reason that the Republican Party anointed Romney to be the Republican nominee is that he will lose to obama.
The bad news is, that Terror’s war on us continues.
Obama Admin: The War On Terror Is ‘Over’
Then stop groping me at the airport...
No, obozo has not resigned, and the war on terror within USA is ON until obozo is in Gitmo.
Everyone is "helpless" is the meme created by fascist Obama.
Now get rid of the TSA, dept of homeland security, and work on actual defense so these attacks don't happen again while not taking away our freedoms.
Semantics with the same intent. We agree, just not on exact phrasing.
He’s admitting they won.
I didn’t say which side _he_ was on, which is obvious as he seems pretty happy about it.
Seeing as teh islamic terrorists have a man in the white house, I’d say teh war on terror is over. The terrorists have won.
Now it’s up to us to put up a good resistance and reclaim our freedom.
Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8-9
Oh but I disagree Mr. President.
It’s like that little girl in Poltergeists ominous warning: “They’re heeeerrreeee..”
Watching, waiting, getting indoctrinated in prison, building their own enclaves....
One thing to consider. People are by the week better informed than they used to be. No question,none at all that there are those happily blind and dumb but due to this little machine here in front of me more people are aware of whats going on around them.
The war on terror IS over. Why would the United States war on itself? It is the principle architect of the coming terror, directed at her citizens.
I expected some sort of a “peace offensive” as a lead-up to the election because it could reap electoral benefits just thru the surprise factor. I expect more of this. Of course, none of it will have any basis in reality and the American people will be more insecure as a result which is a feature and not a bug.
Not from those that I hear though. You claim it, not me.
The economy is what will finish Obama.
How do I delete a post or thread?
[[ Obama Admin: The War On Terror Is ‘Over’ ]]
If the War on Terror is really over, then when will we get rid of the TSA thugs at the airports?
“Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, the source said, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.
A really asinine, knuckleheaded statement by a really knuckleheaded ASS.
I wonder how many people are dumb enough to believe BHO. He helped orchestrate the “Arab Spring” specifically to oust more moderate leaders who’d peacefully coexisted with Israel and replace them with radical Islamist dedicated to Israel’s destruction.
“then there is no longer a need for America to be under the thumb of the countless federal goons and thugs running rampant across our great Nation.”
On the contrary - under Obama’s DHS, it isn’t Islamic terrorists who merit observation and dealing with - it’s Americans whom they deem as dissidents (not in total agreement with The Wan).
“This admin is really stupid.”
Oh, no it isn’t - it’s deeply diabolical. And Islamic.
